If you are visiting the pretty town of Hythe, and are looking for a hotel, try the YMCA and Salvation Army hostels. if these are full consider sleeping in your car. if you do decide to stay at the swan hotel, reconsider sleeping in your car again. overall it is a grubby hotel, with few facilities (no onsite breakfast!!) and...

Not the WORST place I've ever stayed, but not far off! The bed was rock hard. The shower was only suitable for someone who was about 5ft tall. The plug hole was full of someone else's hair (yuk!). The toilet seat was broken. The breakfast we were charged for and which was advertised in the room as being served in... More

At the last minute we had to find somewhere to stay near Dover and everywhere that took dogs except The Swan in Hythe was full. 1 room left and with great trepidation we took it for 83 pounds excluding breakfast. It was a Bank Holiday weekend. First the good things. The room was surprisingly clean, comfortable beds and helpful and... More

As others have mentioned, from the cold to luke warm showers, to the shabby interior…… just don't go there, its horrible. Thumping music till midnight, doors banging to all hours ( the walls are thin ) and at 8 in the morning a carpenter repairing the bar door hammering away……. not a pleasant stay in anyway

I booked this hotel back before the recent poor reviews surfaced - I wish I had cancelled before arriving. But I WHOLE HEARTEDLY agree with the 1 out of five rating Had planned to stay for longer but the place was filthy.... And after dinner and a couple of beers I had no choice but to stay one night as... More

I've marked it "average" - but if there was a category between "poor" and "average" that would be it! First impressions: Poor reception (although I believe the language barrier had more than a little to do with this). Although I have a reasonably simple name, the poor chap could not find it in his old-fashioned reservations book. It took 15... More

Shocking management, filthy hotel expect an argument when you mention it. Don't be fooled by the few good reviews they are from before the new owners took over. Sticky banisters ,dirty carpets oh and you'll need a car to get to breakfast as its in another hotel the other side of town. Disgraceful !

We booked two nights there to visit the light railway in July. The new management do not seem to cope and to put things right: our rooms (7 & 8) were in a very poor state with filthy carpets, missing bulbs, torn curtains... Hot water was not available and supposed to be repaired the next morning. Room 7 was never... More

Hotmail looked cheerful but cheap on arrival. Staff had no idea about our internet booking but dealt with it after a ten minute wait. We then checked in to our large but poorly equipped room to have what proved to be a totally useless shower and then went down to the bar for a few drinks.. Within 5 minutes of... More
